Lilac Ridge: Life on a Family Farm

A look at sustainable agriculture through the lens of the Thurber family's small farm in W. Brattleboro, Vt. When the current generation of owners inherited the farm, they transitioned a traditional dairy operation to organic and added vegetables, flowers and other products. Three generations of the family appear in the film, talking about life on the farm and the changes that have kept it successful.
